Palm Springs fire personnel rescue windmill worker  

Firefighters rescued a windmill maintenance worker who was having chest pains as he worked more than 150 feet above the ground this afternoon.

Palm Springs firefighters were called to the 5400 block of North Indian Canyon about noon regarding a man having chest pains, Battalion Chief Mark Avner said.

They drove about a half mile west of the area where they found the 22-year-old worker suspended 157 feet above the ground.

“It probably took us about an hour or so to get him down,” Avner said.

The man was taken by ambulance to Desert Regional Medical Center where he is undergoing tests.
